How have the Friends of Oundle Parish Church helped?
The Friends have contributed towards the repair of the Bellchamber Mullions; the restoration of the bases and pillars of the West Porch; the floodlighting of the North Face of the Tower; the overhauling of the Tower Clock; and the restoration of the East Window with the addition of a screen to the outside.
They have also contributed £5000 towards the new metal gates across the porch of the West Door; another £5000 towards the Organ Fund; financed the installation of PV panels on a section of the church roof – an expenditure in the region of £30,000; donated £10,500, half the funds, toward the new South Porch and also paid for the refurbishment of the chandelier hanging over the altar.
We are about to contribute toward the refurbishment of the South Porch Roof ….and support the conversion of the West wing due to start in January 2017.
